    Manny's steak house in Minneapolis

    It's been mentioned before (most recently by Spinaker ), but I thought this article was right up the alley of the Pit.

    Enormous 3-pound steak has its own fan club at Manny's in Minneapolis. http://strib.mn/2rYhVgu

      Anytime, but we might have to fly you back in the cargo hold.

      Yes, I have eaten this steak. It took years off of my life, but it was well worth it!

      I love Manny's.

        I think I've been to Manny's in years past, but my folks now seem to prefer Burch for steakination.

        Spinaker I haven't. I've had the ribeye twice... and the cheesecake. And the asparagus as thick as my fat fingers. And a bottle of wine or two. Plus a couple scotches neat. I have only been there twice, but we took customers so I could sort of do what I wanted without being obnoxious. The cheesecake is about half the size of my truck.

        Oh the cheese cake is worth the trip. Also, you have to try the scallop app with Hollandaise Sauce. Amazing.

      In nearly 25 years living in the Minneapolis area, I've been there 3 times. It's great. Worth the price. I'm just too cheap to go more often.

        I come down every so often, usually on business, and Manny’s is a favorite.

          Ha! I've been to Minny about 10 times and been to Manny's twice. Granted, not on my own dime (took customers). But if I go back on my own dime, I'll splurge for a meal. The sad thing is, if I take my wife, she'll get a vegetable plate.

            The loaded hash browns are a great potato side dish as well.

                  Sounds like you'll need an ambulance ride home due to a meat coma.

                Making me jealous. I have eaten there several times. Love it. In addition to the meat, the hash browns are awesome.

                I've been to the great city of Minneapoils once back in the 90's. I was there for a trade show. It was on a weekend and my company had a booth which I particiated in. Saturday night our little team of 4 went to a steak house. Recommended by some local folks. I do not remember the name. I do know the steak I had and others had was fantastic. I most likely had a filet. I don't remember. So, if Manny's was in existence in mid 90's it could have been the place we were at. I'll never know. I do know for my short visit, it was one of the cities that I was so impressed with. Now, I was there Friday evening to Sunday morning.

              The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


              Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

              Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


              The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


              The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

              Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

              We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
